Dawn from The Minimal Mom helps you look at your clothes in a different way to find your winter wardrobe essentials. She shares how she created her winter wardrobe with adaptable tips.

Change your mindset about your wardrobe

Dawn wanted a simplified closet filled with items she could grab and wear any day for any occasion that made her feel good about herself. She eliminated anything that made her feel self-conscious or that needed constant adjustments throughout the day.

Dawn’s number one criterion for her wardrobe

Everything has to fit! She used to have 10 times as much clothing but only a fraction of the items actually fit and the rest was clutter. Decluttering also helps her see the gaps in her wardrobe that need to be filled.

Pack away clothes that don’t fit

Weight fluctuates over time and it’s hard to give up some outfits that don’t fit at the moment. Just pack them away for future use if needed.
